Grants Administration

Grants Program

The Grants Administration Section oversees all Federal Homeland Security Grants administered by the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management within the Colorado Department of Public Safety.

A core mission of the Homeland Security Grants Program is to enhance the ability of state, local and tribal governments, and non-profit organizations, to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from acts of terrorism and other disasters.

The Homeland Security Grant program, which is comprised of several individual grants, funds a range of preparedness activities, including personnel, planning, organization, equipment purchases, training, exercises and management and administration costs. The section is responsible for tracking each federal grant funding source and distributing funds to sub-grantees in an efficient manner.

The Grants Administration Section is responsible for the financial strategy, compliance and distribution of grants funds to local governments, tribal governments, state agencies, and nonprofit organizations.  Additionally, the Section approves grant expenditures, tracks the financial and programmatic progress of sub-grantees and implements corrective actions to ensure compliance.
